After Canisius College
- Very Good235
As a junior, my experience has been very bittersweet. My school lacks racial/ethnic diversity and it can be very uncomfortable being a student there. It would be nice to see more people who have similar life experiences as me. I would like a balance between learning about others experiences and interacting with people who have similar experiences. Although my college lacks racial diversity, I have found comfort in my professors. They always acknowledge and admire my great work ethics and my input on class topics. I have built great relationships with some of my professors, so this helps keep me motivated. I love that my school has a variety of clubs to participate in and there is always activities going on, during the week and even during the weekends. We have clubs that focus on specific cultures, people, and personalities. I may be graduating in a year, but I am happy to say that I have met some of the most beautiful, inspiring, and loving people at Canisius College and I would not change this experience for anything in the world.

Canisius College is one of the best choices that I have made in my life. I have had nothing but good experiences, from friends I've made, professors I have had, and school events that I have attended. The school has a strong Jesuit foundation that shapes the way the student learns and how everyone interacts with each other. They let each person grow on their own, whether it be with in the Catholic faith or not, and always offer support. If I could do it all over, I would definitely choose Canisius College again. The "homey" atmosphere that the campus and people provide for the individual make Canisius the most unique college that I applied to a year ago.

I am not an athlete and I do not participate in intramurals or club sports, but I do attend the basketball games. Men basketball games are more important than women basketball games, but both teams work really hard. Every sports team at my college has practice almost everyday, sometimes at 5am in the morning and they all travel to other places for games, tournaments, etc. We have a club called C-block which goes to games and take up entire sections wearing Canisius gear and screaming out rants and chants. They make signs and get people to come out and support our athletes. Our athletic facilities are great in quality and we can take the shuttle vans to and from the facilities at any time.
